    Yay It's Christmas!!

    Well, maybe not there yet, but here it is Christmas morning.

    Also if you wake up around "5:30 a.m. on Dec. 25th, steal a glance out the window on your way to the tree. The crescent moon will be gliding by the bright star Spica--a pretty close encounter. In some places the moon will actually blot out the star. Check http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and more information."

    Merry Christmas!!

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    On Christmas eve, my cousins and I made Christmas-themed pastries. The whole thing came in a box, pre-packaged with plastic Santas, sleds, reindeers, gummy candies, and a couple of other things. We used edible paste to hold everything together, and covered everything with "snow". It was great fun, even though only 10% of the whole thing was edible, the rest being plastic.

    I guess that's the closest we will ever come to actually celebrating Christmas here in Brunei, where it's a secular holiday. Not much of a festive atmosphere here at the moment...how dull. :zzz:

    What is the meaning of Christmas? Shopping spree? Or do you really remember and believe that Jesus dieing for your sin?

    I open presents Christmas morning. And we're eating dinner on Christmas night.

    Most people don't celebrate Christmas because of Christ. It's a commercial holiday.

    is that bad :uhh:

    Looks like someone hasn't seen "A Charlie Brown Christmas." :biggrin:

    Though seriously, Christmas is usually a time when Christians celebrate the start of Jesus's life, where Easter is the time when they contemplate the death and resurection. At least, that's what we did in Catholic school.

    Lies, all lies. What most people don't know is that Santa Claus is actually Jesus. Think about that one for a bit.

    Santa Claus is fake, like the seven little dwarves of snowwhite.

    I don't get Santa. What's so great about an old fat guy who empties his sack into you socks?

    Where have I heard that.
